The Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges connects corporate and foundation donors with high-achieving students - impacting Ohio’s future talent pool.


The Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges (OFIC) was founded in 1950 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization representing higher education in Ohio.

OFIC solicits corporate donations and distributes funds to member colleges and universities to help students — impacting local economies and providing opportunities for corporations to strengthen and multiply their pool of future college-educated workers.

These gifts enhance the higher education experience for our 80,000 students as they develop the knowledge and skills necessary to enter the national and international workforce.

Your gift to OFIC is an investment in the workforce of the future and has direct economic impact on your local community.
